But after upgrade to Asterisk 14 rc1, even if I use the sample
configuration files, I didn't get any information when call rasterisk.

Is that expected?

Just to let you know: Jonathan H in Asterisk User Mailing List reports something related:

"Great! Thanks, team, but just before I file a bug..

No matter how many v and d I put, when I now do "dialplan reload" in
v14, it just says "Dialplan reloaded".

Previously, it used to give some info, and I could scroll back and see
if there were any obvious errors in the dialplan.

Is this and intended change, something I've done wrong, or a bug that
needs filing?"

I noticed that the same happens here.

I can confirm this, using both 'asterisk -cv' and 'asterisk -rv' no ast_verbose messages are displayed.  Both work correctly in Asterisk 13.

This does not effect logger output to files, I verified that uncommenting the 'full' output channel in {{logger.conf}} still works correctly.

Yeah, me too.

Just an update...   There was an undocumented behavior change between 13 and 14 where in 14's logger.conf you MUST specify "verbose" on the console channel where in 13 "verbose" was implied.   Temporarily you can simply add "verbose" to the console channel in logger.conf but there's a fix in the works to make it implied again.

I've submitted reviews to fix the behavior:
14: https://gerrit.asterisk.org/3932 and https://gerrit.asterisk.org/3934
master: https://gerrit.asterisk.org/3933 and https://gerrit.asterisk.org/3935

The first review of each branch actually fixes an error when 'logger.conf' is missing or invalid.  The second review's fix the verbose issue but require the first review.
